  1. Acronym.

    Thanks for review. Surprised to hear that the hood can't be stowed. I thought with the "interior stabilization ring" it might be partially stowable. Two Questions: 1. Does the GT version have jacketsling loops on inside? 2. How do you like the reversed hardware snaps on the front compared with 47R?

    Yeah, I tried on both an M and L, and the roominess was fine on both, but I preferred the added sleeve and body length. It seems like Acronym made a concerted effort with this jacket to have whatever sleeve you are wearing underneath come through at the opening so they made the sleeves shorter, more along the lines of a traditional top coat.

    Been field testing the J62-S for the last few weeks, and thought I'd share some impressions. Overall, it might be the best ACR jacket I've ever owned. I sized up from an M to an L because the fit was profile, and I wanted more of a straight fit. Sizing up still keeps its tailored shape, but with a slightly longer sleeve. I also love the added length. So far I've found it amazing to layer with, especially in combination with a J58. It's a great everyday piece too. I can wear it all day at work, and then if I go out that night, it transitions extremely well. Initially, I was worried I might not love the minimal amount of pockets, especially with no zippers, but the two pockets are so deep, there is actually more total storage space than other ACR jackets with more pockets. You also quickly get used to the double single welt pockets that do a fine job at keeping everything secure. I can fit an entire book, gloves, wallet, etc. with zero bulk. The only negative I've found with the jacket is the hood seems to have an excess of fabric, and if this is done for a reason, I can't figure out why. I mostly wear it without the hood, as I think it looks cleaner without it, but in snow or rain, I'll snap it back on. All in all, I can't recommend this piece enough. Definitely one of the more slept on pieces of FW17. I've attached a photo of the hood to show what I'm talking about (intentionally bunched up to show the amount of excess). Does anyone think its actually a error and not intentional?

    I have a J47R as well, and I usually just roll it up pretty tight so the velcro closure covers the Speedlock. I'm usually afraid to keep it rolled up though because I'm afraid it will wear out the GT overtime. Does anyone keep it stowed 100% of the time (provided it's not raining)?

    J61-GT. Emailed ACRNM and they got back to me right away. Jacket is shipping tomorrow, took longer because it's over 1000 Euros (shipping to US) and it was a national holiday today.

    Anyone else still waiting on shipping notification for drop 2? Ordered around 11 am EST, and received order and payment confirmation soon after.

    Looks to me like the J61 is using YKK metal zips. I wonder if Acronym heard/experienced any of the criticism from FW15/16 about the Raccagni double zip on the J53TS... @AvantSol- Can you confirm they are YKK? If so, how do they feel?

    If the sneaker looks anything like the original HTM Air Moc Mid, I am intrigued.

    Obviously, the J47R doesn't have an AuxZip but layering wise, the two fit together incredibly well. The pattern on the J47 allows for significantly more movement than even some other jackets like the J1A-GT (which is AuxZip compatible).

    Anyone have any idea what the difference between last year's J58 and this one might be? Webpage says Gen 1.1.
  11. Acronym.

    FW17 will be in two drops like last year. Majority of the collection will be in the first drop, next week. Second drop will be mid October.
  12. Acronym.

    From what I've heard, Acronym has been struggling to keep up with demand and quality of production. I've already heard rumors that even FW17 will be in lower quantities than past seasons so it doesn't surprise me that they are taking SS18 off. I assume it's for similar reasons.
  13. Acronym.

    For FW17, ACRNM has added a removable hood to the J62-S.

    Update: I was able to get the duties reduced to 7.1% under the tariff 6201.93.4700, which works because the jacket is made up of man-made fibers, meets the requirements of Recreational Performance Outerwear, and is water resistant. UPS would not accept 6201.99.8030 because Acronym marked the jacket as "Men's Jacket of Man-Made Fibers (6201.9300)". Not as low as 4.2% but much preferable to 27.7%. Thanks @CARLOOA for the above link, which is how I found the new code.

    I've had success in the past season using @CARLOOA's advice on lowering duties into the US, but I'm having a ton of trouble importing my J47R. Talked to several different people but no one wants to accept 6201.99.8030 as the correct code. This is UPS's latest response: "The tariff the importer is suggesting (6201.99.8030) is not correct as that is for other fiber composition with man-made fiber restraints." Anyone else have similar issues and end up successfully reducing the duties?
